Cultural Trail Challenges

Paddle Away!

Join us for the Cultural Trail Grand Opening on June 17 from 1pm-6pm and for the first time ever, ride a Paddle Boat on City Park Lake!  In partnership with River & Trail Outfitters and the Hagerstown Convention and Tourism Bureau, float away on a Paddle Boat, or a Kayak or a Canoe, and enjoy a beautiful afternoon like never before! 

This is a once in a lifetime experience – Paddle Boats, Kayaks and Canoes have never been allowed on the lake before! Watching your boat move through the water by your own effort is enjoyable.  Spending time under the sky, on the water, watching the colors of the blues, the greens, the grays, and the browns is enjoyable.  Getting this kind of exercise is going to make anybody feel better! 

Connect With Downtown

The Challenge
Walk , jog, or bike the length of the NEW Cultural Art Trail!  As you do, keep an eye out for the many pieces of art and expand your mind. The total length of the trail is 0.77 miles from the Antietam Street entrance to the Museum of Fine Arts.  The Grand Opening of the Trail is on Saturday, June 17 from 2pm-5pm. 

The Hagerstown Cultural Trail connects Downtown Hagerstown Arts & Entertainment District with City Park!  The new Trail will feature community art, a whimsical garden, a Mural of Unusual Size, and the Faces of Hagerstown which captures the truth and life of Hagerstown through the people who live, work, and play here.
